    Looking ahead a bit now, I'm thinking about starting a new photo competition in the next month or so. Probably September when the summer is over and the internet tends to get back up to speed :)

    What I'd like to do first is to gather some ideas/suggestions for a theme. Please feel free to add any thoughts you may have to this thread

    How about "dogs being dogs" - sort of a celebration of their wonderful antics and things that demonstrate why we love them so much. Whether it's water, mud, running, nicking food...whatever your dog enjoys the most.

    Me too, but my vision includes spaniels and fruit bushes as well as labs for some reason.

    Meg says she doesn't mind what she has to do but please don't expect too much action from her. :)

    I've also thought about "Labs in water" but "Labs and summer" is a more general topic so that more people could take place in the contest. You can have some action shots and some portraits here as well.

    I've participated, organized and followed many photo-contests on various boards and the rule is, the more general the topic of the contest, the more entries you will get.

    I'm leaning towards 'water' - and bumping this up in case any others want to comment.

    I agree with Kate and Julie, not so keen on the water as not all dogs like water :( xx

    What about 'Labradors / Dogs Loving Summer?

    It's the Season that we are just coming out of and its a topic that can encompass dogs in water .......

    I suppose "dogs and kids" is out as not everyone has them, but also "dog and owner/handler/significant person" could work. I love some of the selfies that have gone up, and also some of the "unguarded moments" at training which have not just been on here, but are popular photos for professional photographers. I guess it makes it complicated as to who took the photo though, that if it is a member posting it, it clearly can't be the member in the picture! One to think about perhaps.

    I'm all for the labs and water idea (doesn't mean the dogs have to love water!!), but agree with Jac about re-considering who takes the photo.
